3 beeps is usually a memory error. In fact, it means there is a failure within the first 64KB of system memory. You can usually find out if one of your ram sticks is bad by taking a stick out and turning the PC back on. If it boots, you found the bad ram. If not, replace and try again.
Once you can ever get it to boot, you can go to memtest ( and download the auto installer for USB key and boot from USB (usually by pressing f12 or del, depending on your will say on boot up). This will tell you if you have any further ram issues.
If this doesn't resolve your issue, the other option 3 beeps can mean is a bad motherboard or other system device (worse case scenario, and fairly rare).
Hope this helps...

The three beeps normally due to RAM defect, check the RAM stick if it is placed properly, re-install the RAM module, els replace the RAM.
Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution

Normally this is an sympton of your harddisk crash. But would recommend you to try few steps try disabling few hardware items one by one and then check if the computer boots up like disable CD Drive it that works then the problem is with cd drive. and then graphics card and try the trail and error methods.

Note: Perform the steps only if you are aware about how to remove and add the hardwares back to your computer if not take the computer to the techician who will perform them for you.

Monitor lite is on but screen is completely black

You have a possible hardware problem! Is the monitor light green or amber/red? If it's the latter it's not getting a video signal which means it can be anything from the cable to the video card to the motherboard etc! Do you hear any beeps from your computer or just 1 on start up? 1 beep is normal any more and it will spell out a fault code! More details are required for an accurate diagnosis!

I just got a used syncmaster 203b monitor. I hooked it up and all I get is a black screen. I downloaded Driver whiz and hooked it up again. Still a black screen. Still get a black screen the blue light is...

Make sure that your computer unit is working. Sometimes we suspect that it is a monitor problem but usually, it is a frozen CPU set.

When you turn on the monitor, it should light the blue led and after a while, when it does not receive signal from the CPU, it will turn orange. If that is the case, the monitor is functioning well.

So what could be the problem?

Make sure that you hooked the monitor to the right VGA port. If you have an internal VGA port (built in with the motherboard) and you also have an external Video Card, you should hook it to the external VGA port and not the internal one since it is overridden by default.

Do you hear the "short beep" sound when you boot your PC? That signals a good video system. If you don't hear that beep sound (provided your PC's speakers are okay), you should open your CPU case and try to remove your memory modules (RAM). Clean the pins with an eraser and put it on.

Now, your computer should work fine and so with your monitor.

VA1703wb... Monitor beeps when I turn on the pc then goes black

Please read below and look at the pictures of failed VIEWSONIC nd othe monitor before try to DIY repair.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

The screen is black and I cant get it to the safe

if you hear no beeps when you boot, you probably just have a bad video card or monitor, or your monitor cable may have come loose....answer back...
